When to visit Mumbai?
Mumbai is best visited between October and February, when the weather is nice and great for touring and exploration. The temperature varies from 10 and 35 degrees Celsius at this time. During the monsoon season, from June to September, Mumbai receives a lot of rain. The temperature fluctuates between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. Monsoon is the best season to visit Mumbai for a hike over the neighbouring hills, which are at their greenest and have spectacular waterfalls cascading down. Summer in Mumbai is not a good season to come since it is excessively hot and humid, with temperatures ranging from 25 to 38 degrees Celsius.
Mumbai’s culinary scene
Mumbai is known for its culinary diversity, among other things. You may either spend INR 20 on two spicy, excellent vada pavs or a plate of steaming, hot idlis, or INR 6000 on an exquisite Japanese lunch at Wasabi, Taj. Mumbai has more restaurants than any other Indian city, offering a diverse range of international cuisines. There’s also a great combination of north and south Indian cuisines.
South Indian cuisine
What started out as a tiffin in British India — a tiny meal consumed in between meals — has spread across the country. This is particularly true in Mumbai, which is famed for its toil. A South Indian tiffin is offered every half-kilometer, at any time of day or night. You can have some of the greatest idlis and vadas around. How could you forget to order a paper-thin dosa with hot sambhar?
If you are not a Mumbaikar, you should not miss Vada Batata. Batata Vada is a breakfast, lunch, or tea meal that can be served hot or cold. It goes well with coriander chutney and plenty of green peppers. It is available on the streets of Mumbai as well as in hotels.
Sandwich from Bombay
The Bombay sandwich is a buttered white bread sandwich with an unusual blend of ingredients. There are several ingredients in these sandwiches. They add onions, tomatoes, and paneer. Some restaurants often put a lot of cheese on top to make it appear more appealing.
Bread and butter are an unbeatable combination, which is why this dish is so popular. It’s made using Mumbai’s local bread, Brun or gutless pao, which has a crispy-hard, crumbly outside but is incredibly soft on the interior. The brun is chopped and smeared with butter. There may be a hint of sweetness in some sections. It’s typically served with chai (tea). Try dipping Brun maska in tea if you’re not from Mumbai.
It is, without a doubt, Mumbai’s “Chaat.” It’s a dish that each ‘bhel walla’ will create in their own special way, with an unparalleled taste combination. The dish is made with simple yet wonderful ingredients like puffed rice.
Mayo chicken roll
And here’s something we’ve known since kindergarten. Boiling chicken with sweet mayonnaise and celery leaf is wrapped in a bread roll to make the Chicken Mayo Roll. It’s so well-known that it’s even broadcast during commercial breaks! This spice-loving metropolis appreciated this dish as much as any other local specialty, and it can be found in posh grocery stores and bakeries.
In this dish, ragda and pattice are blended. To make a tangy, mouth-watering meal, crush the ragda with the patties and chopped onions. It is one of Mumbai’s most popular dishes. People enjoy eating it for breakfast and as an evening snack.
Faluda is a rich drink based on a Persian dessert brought to India by the Mughals. With ice cream on top, it’s made with vermicelli, milk, dried fruits, rose syrup (optional), and sabza or basil seeds. On a hot, dry day, it’s something you’d select to refresh and revive oneself.
It’s commonly made at home by mixing chana dal (yellow gramme) with sugar (gur) and drying it. Manual grinding is then used to smooth it out. Cardamom powders and other spices are added to enhance the flavour. The dough is then formed into little balls and inserted into the mixture. These balls are then fried on a flat pan.
If you had to pick one dish from Mumbai that truly satisfied your soul, this would be it. To produce this simple and humble meal, cooked toor dal (a lentil) is gently tempered with ghee (clarified butter), turmeric, and cumin powder. When poured over steaming hot rice or bhaat, it takes on magical, legendary proportions.
Like its name implies, Frankie is made with excellent naan bread with an egg topping that is stuffed with mutton or chicken and then wrapped up. A special combination of spices is sprinkled on top to enhance the tastes. In the vegetarian version, the stuffing is made with paneer or potatoes instead of eggs. This well-known and well-loved delicacy was inspired by the Lebanese pita bread wrap. It’s a quick and delectable snack that’s often eaten on the go.
So, without further ado, choose what you want and treat your taste buds to some of Mumbai’s tastiest dishes.
